The story of the First World War seen through the eyes of a simple soldier comes to Gainsborough this month in Meet Tommy Atkins.

And we have a pair of tickets to give away for the show.

As soon as war is declared, reservist Tommy Atkins is immediately called up.

Within weeks he sees his first action in the fields of France and subsequently experiences the full scale of life in the Western Front trenches – the horror, the pain, the misery, the boredom and even the moments of joy, taking him to the depths of despair but also bringing him unique comradeship that he would never find again.

It is at Trinity Arts Centre inGainsborough on Saturday, July 28 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £12 and £10 on 01427 676655 or
